Gracias, gracias por ser un referente para todos, gracias por enseñarnos que aunque las cosas sean duras y difíciles, lo importante es luchar hasta el final, luchar por lo que deseas, gracias por enseñarnos que la edad no importa a la hora de soñar, a la hora de sumergirte en la imaginación y disfrutar de aquello que te hace feliz, gracias por enseñarnos esos valores que nos guiaran durante todo el resto del camino, de corazón, gracias por todo. Espero que nos acompañes junto a tu esposa el resto de nuestros caminos, porque para nosotros siempre estarás en nuestras mentes, en nuestros recuerdos y sobre todo en nuestro corazón. Gracias. Lo que una vez la muerte separó, ahora se vuelve a unir. Un amor de dos personas que lucharon juntos, pelearon por echar adelante una familia unida, una familia que aunque pasaran los años, aunque les bañasen tormentas, seguían unidos, codo con codo Ahora esa familia les agradece todo eso y les despide felices de saber que vuelven a estar juntos, vuelven a disfrutar de otra oportunidad, de ser felices para siempre, de vivir juntos una nueva vida sin sufrimientos ni amarguras, una vida donde se les recompensara por todo lo pasado. Gracias por todo. Vuestras hijas y nietos que os quieren.
